About this vacancy

Vegetarian for Life is the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians. We work with a diverse variety of stakeholders, including some of the UK's biggest care chains and food suppliers; government; and partner NGOs, to support and protect older vegans and vegetarians.

As we continue to expand our work, we have an opportunity to create the charity’s first Head of Research and Policy. This critical role will help to drive our lobbying, campaigning, advocacy, and research forward at a critical time for our organisation.

We are looking for an exceptional and passionate individual with proven experience of managing and developing successful integrated campaigns and campaign strategies.

The ideal candidate will drive our impact by using their skills and experience to effectively shape policy and research interventions. They will help Vegetarian for Life to make a real and tangible difference to the lives of older vegans and vegetarians across the UK – both now and in the future.

Other UK travel may be required, and you must be prepared and willing to travel for this role. The role is primarily home based, with regular attendance at the Manchester office.

In line with the charity’s core values, you should be a committed vegan or vegetarian.

  • From £35,000 p.a. (£17.95 per hour)
